New great picture comparison on Bree Palin’s blog– What we should do now in order to progress with the babygate investigation
Guestpost by Patrick
Bree Palin has published a new picture comparison essay on her blog, comparing pictures of Sarah supposedly highly pregnant with pictures of other celebrities who were at the same stage of pregnancy. These are excellent comparisons, in my opinion the best we have seen so far.
Please take a look, if you haven’t already done so:

This also leads us to the question of whether creating excellent picture comparisons is enough in order to convince the MSM and the general public that Sarah Palin has faked her pregnancy, and what else could or should be done in order to progress with the investigation.
In the past, several picture comparisons have been published by Trig Truther blogs. Have they achieved their aim so far? Without a doubt, the number of supporters of what could be called the “fake pregnancy theory” has risen enormously since the first pictures of Sarah emerged where she displays a flat stomach despite being highly pregnant. The growth of this support is apparent when we observe the sharp rise in the number of comments on Trig Truther blogs over this year.
However, we have to face the fact that the large majority of the general public still is not aware of “babygate”. For example, when CNN-anchor Jack Cafferty (who is highly critical of Sarah Palin) recently asked on his blog “What would you like to read in Palin’s memoir”, he received 303 comments. Only 2 of these comments refer to the pregnancy issue, and none of the commenters openly addressed the faked pregnancy.
This is of course a disappointing result. It is obvious that the main reason the public is generally unaware of “babygate” is that the MSM strictly refuses to touch the subject. In the fall of 2008, Sarah Palin effectively squashed the rumors by announcing that Bristol was five-months pregnant. The MSM did the maths and came to the conclusion the Bristol could not possibly have had Trig in April 2008. Case closed.
Now it seems almost “Un-American” to touch this subject. Surely we have to be as crazy as the birthers! The accusation that a Governor and former vice-presidential candidate who together with John McCain received 46% of the votes could have attempted such an insane deception apparently is just “too much” for the MSM to even consider. It cannot be true because it cannot be true.
I have strongly rejected the comparison to the “birthers” before. We have absolutely nothing in common with those people. The crucial difference is that the “birthers” don’t want to accept irrefutable evidence about Obama’s birth.
In contrast, the Trig Truthers are still waiting for evidence to be presented that could PROVE that Sarah Palin is the mother of Trig, and they have on the other hand collected a huge pile of circumstancial evidence that speaks strongly against the notion that Sarah Palin has given birth to Trig.
In fact, it’s not just the circumstancial evidence that we have. We have also received a good amount of excellent inside information so far, as I have explained in my first guestpost here on palingates.
However, it’s incredibly difficult to find people in Alaska who are willing to go on the record. Although we have absolute reassurance at this point that babygate is real – a belief also confirmed by the very noticeable fact that Sarah Palin has never ever tried to threaten or intimidate anybody by legal means on the “Trig Truther” issue - only Gryphen dares to continually and openly address this question in Alaska. ADN columnist Michael Carey has tackled the fake pregnancy once, but I am pretty sure that he now wishes he had rather not bragged about what his lawyer friend had once told him as being the “absolute truth”.
So what’s the best way to go forward now?
In my opinion, we need to back up these excellent photo comparisons with other evidence, such as statements from people in Alaska who saw her during that time. We need to talk to as many Alaskans as we can.
Another thing we need to do is talk to the journalists who wrote about Sarah Palin during her so called pregnancy and ask them more detailed questions about their interview time with her. I can tell you that this line of investigation is already uncovering some interesting facts which reveal a much clearer "picture" of the story.
For instance, I telephoned Melissa DeVaughn a few days ago. She wrote the Alaska Magazine article which was published in February 2008. It contained some interesting observations about Bristol which always had bothered me. Here is a link to the article:

The important part of the article is this statement in which Melissa discusses seeing Bristol.
"Across the room, the front door bursts open and Bristol, 17 and the second-oldest of the Palins’ four children, rushes in. She’s a younger version of her mother, with the same striking, dark eyes and hair that have earned Palin a reputation as “the hottest governor in the country.”"
An interesting fact came up during my discussion with Melissa. She told me that she conducted the interviews during May and July 2007. Melissa told me that the sighting of Bristol which is mentioned in the article occurred in July 2007, in Sarah’s parents house. That was also the last time Melissa DeVaughn saw the Palin family in person, as she explained to me. Therefore, it would have been impossible for Melissa in July 2007 to have noticed if Bristol was pregnant, and more importantly it also meant that Melissa did not see Bristol not pregnant sometime at the beginning of 2008. A period of time during which she would have been noticeably pregnant. If indeed as I strongly believe, she was.
Another interesting fact that we can deduce from the new knowledge is that Bristol would have been 16 not 17 years old as the article states. Of course Bristol's age could have been added by a researcher just before the article was printed but how convenient was that for Sarah? Here we have an article that "suggests" that the interviewer saw a "17 year old Bristol" and she does not mention that she looked pregnant.
So, another mystery solved by asking questions and receiving answers which add facts to our investigation, which, believe me, is going full steam ahead.
